Ghostly Illustrations for Halloween

What do you think of when you think about Halloween?  In the world of illustrations it's really the perfect holiday because there are so many images that spring to mind.  From black cats and bats, to Dracula and Frankenstein, to tombstones and haunted houses, to scarecrows and pumpkin patches, there's a colourful profusion of the spooky and mythical at this time of year.

Sandwiched between the Canadian and American Thanksgivings, Halloween is a celebration that kids can sink their teeth into — literally. We wait for trick-or-treaters in costumes ranging from adorable to ghoulish to come calling, then dole out sweets for the sweets' goody bags.  There are pink-cheeked witches and diminutive Ironmen, goblins and ghouls, princesses and fairies.  The list is endless.

With the countdown to Oct. 31 underway, I thought it might be fun to feature collections of some of these images of Halloween.  To get things started, here are some awesome ghostly illustrations:
